COSTAGUTA, Alejandro  and  ALVAREZ, Fernando. The child with hypertransaminasemia: what's next?. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2014, vol.112, n.4, pp.369-374. ISSN 0325-0075.

The raising of serum transaminases is seen with increasing frequency in different scenarios from daily practice. This poses a complex challenge to the pediatrician owing to the scarcity of bibliographic information available on this topic. From the completely asymptomatic patient to the child with signs of chronic liver disease, the full spectrum is highly varied, compelling to guide the investigation efficiently, in order to avoid unnecessary costs and suffering to the patient and their family. Coordinated work with the hepatologist is advisable in most instances.

Keywords : Transaminases; Hypertransaminasemia; Children.
